WOW! Romantic, sexy, riveting and completely addictive read.

Connor McKinnon, is loving, loyal and protective of his loved ones. He's no saint and he constantly feels remorseful of the things that he has done, in order to survive the war. You can't help but love him. He's a gentleman and a strong sexy warrior to boot.

Lady Sarah Woodville is strong, compassionate and courageous and I admire her. She has endured a lot in such a short time and she evolves into more a mature person for it. She finds her strength and peace in Connor and would love nothing more than just be just Sarah and not some high nobility, which is her life.

Loved the connection between the H/h, and the sheer love they share. Not to mention the secondary characters which make up the Rangers. This is beautifully written, wonderfully emotional and romantic that will certainly have your little heart fluttering.

A favorite quote:

Och, Sarah, how shall I call augh’ beautiful again unless it be the sight of you?


Connor

Pamela Clare
“Och, Sarah, how shall I call augh’ beautiful again unless it be the sight of you?”
Pamela Clare, Defiant

Pamela Clare
“You are new here, so I will explain. In this land, nobility comes not from one’s fathers or a title or from the land one owns, but from one’s actions.” His voice was hard-edged, and his words seemed harsh to her. “The MacKinnon brothers are the highest nobility to those who live on the frontier—true warriors, men who know how to fight and survive, men who put the lives of others before their own. Your family’s wealth, your title, your virtue—they mean nothing out here. They won’t fill your belly, and they won’t keep you alive. What matters most right now is your survival. (Joseph to Lady Sarah)”
Pamela Clare, Defiant

Kristen Fantastic review, my sweet Wendy. I love the pic of Connor. I almost read this book on the 8 hour flight home from Peru, but I was too tired to fully enjoy the story. I felt it best to wait until I could think properly before reading. Lol.
